Product description

Review

"Filled with questions to make you think and teaching that will bring 'aha' moments, this book is a must read for everyone considering marriage. I highly recommend it to you--I wish I'd had it when I was single!"--Linda Dillow

"Gary Thomas debunks the mythical search for a soul mate to help you choose a 'sole-mate'--someone who will lay down their life in faithful love. This biblically based book is for anyone who wants to be wise in their pursuit of a spouse."--Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott

"Gary Thomas looks at the heart of a subject that many consider him an expert on--successful marriage. Anyone who is dating, engaged, or hopes to be one day needs to read this book!"--Ed Young

"The Sacred Search will help those who desire marriage to pursue it in a manner that deepens their faith, honors God, and blesses their future spouse."--Jim Daly

"Why should I get married? could be the most important questions Milennials are asking. Gary Thomas helps this generation navigate the why in a Christ-honoring way."--Esther Fleece

"Our culture is obsessed with compatibility and chemistry. However, in relationship formation character always trumps chemistry. The Sacred Search is a gut check for anyone considering, delaying, or even pursuing marriage."--Ted Cunningham

"Gary Thomas dismantles contemporary philosophies on love, sexuality, and marital union by offering strong arguments for why they have not been successful. His appeal to a kingdom-first perspective gives both hope and healing for a generation in desperate need of a fresh and Christ-centered understanding of God's plan for marriage. This book is a must-read before anyone says 'I do.'"--Michelle Anthony

"Marriages are falling apart all around us and I believe Gary Thomas has just gone straight to the root. Gary just built a map to help you see through the emotion and infatuation to God's heart for dating and marriage."--Jennie Allen

"Gary creates a compelling argument that shifts the believer's view of relationships, dating, and marriage to focus on something greater. I'm thankful Gary has created this resource."--Joy Eggerichs

"Singles, pay attention. Gary knows marriage, and is eager to help those of us desiring marriage get there with confidence and grace."--Lisa Anderson

From the Back Cover

What if being in love isn&;t a good enough reason to get married?

What if dating isn&;t about finding &;the one&; but about serving the One who lovesyou most?


Don&;t Get Married Until You Read This Book.
&#160;
In&#160;The Sacred Search,&#160;Gary Thomas challenges you to think beyond finding a &;soul mate&; and to look for a &;sole mate&;&;someone who will walk with you on your spiritual journey. After all, if you don&;t know&#160;why&#160;to marry, you won&;t know who&#160;to marry.&#160;The Sacred Search&#160;casts a vision for building a relationship arounda shared spiritual mission&;and making a marriage with eternity at its heart.

9 Must-Have Conversations for a Doubt-Free Wedding Day The Sacred Search DVD Study The Sacred Search A Lifelong Love
Overview When you love each other with God’s purposes in mind, intentional conversation becomes not just preparation for marriage but the first step in merging two lives into one for the ultimate glory of God. Includes guides and questions. In this eight-session DVD companion to Gary’s book The Sacred Search, you’ll explore with Gary why it’s so important to know the why of marriage before you know the who of marriage. What if you stopped looking for a “soul mate” and started looking for a “sole mate”—someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.
